Abstract:

Many uninsured children have unmet health care needs. However, when they apply for health coverage
through Medicaid and CHIP, they often have to wait for over a month before their application is processed
and their parents can make doctors' appointments. "Presumptive eligibility" can help children get needed care
right away.
